Is it possible not to take part in any of those sports?

I just gave away all by books by Husserl. I tried dozens of times to read them but finally came to the conclusion that I'm just too dull-witted to understand anything he says. As for Nietzsche, there are few people I love to read more, although I read him in short doses very far apart for fear that his insanity might be contagious.
